Sabres fall to Hurricanes on Hockey Fights Cancer Night in Buffalo

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber /

For a moment at KeyBank Center on Saturday night, it seemed like Evander Kane may have willed the Buffalo Sabres toward a victory. Ten seconds after Kane had scored to erase a 1-0 deficit with 7:33 remaining, he crashed the net and again knocked the puck over the goal line, seemingly to give the Sabres a lead.

Instead, the goal was overturned when officials ruled that Kane had scored using a kicking motion, and the moment became a microcosm of the greater problem in an eventual 3-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes. 

"It's a 1-1 game late in the third period," Sabres coach Phil Housley said. "We battled back in the game, but we make a mistake and it ends up in our net. I think the bottom line is they took advantage of our mistakes and we didn't take advantage of theirs."

Sabres host Hurricanes on Hockey Fights Cancer Night in Buffalo

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber /

It's a fair assumption that, when the Buffalo Sabres take the ice in lavender sweaters for Hockey Fights Cancer Night prior to their game against Carolina on Saturday, nearly everyone on the ice or in the stands will be able to call to mind a person in their life who's been affected by the disease. 

Phil Housley, for example, will think of his mother. MaryLee Housley was 59 when she passed away from glioblastoma in 2000.

Gameday Blog: Sharks vs. Bruins 11/18

Your source for news for San Jose Sharks gameday

by Ann Frazier & Casey Krygier /

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every gameday. This blog will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets, so be sure to check back as the day goes on.

Tonight the Sharks host the Boston Bruins for some Saturday night hockey. The two teams have already met earlier this season in Boston, where the Bruins pulled out a semi-controversial 2-1 win. 

The Bruins sit at .500 and are three points out of playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, while the Sharks firmly have a grip on the third Pacific Division playoff spot. However, it's not yet a quarter of the way through the season, so there's still plenty of hockey to be played.

While Boston is coming off a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings, the Sharks are coming off a 2-0 loss to the Florida Panthers that saw the team be shut out for the first time this season. It wasn't for a lack of trying, however; the Sharks put the puck in the net twice, but both goals were later overturned. 

It's also Hockey Fights Cancer Night presented by Kaiser Permanente for the Sharks. Keep an eye out for special Hockey Fights Cancer merchandise to be on sale, as well as pre- and in-game ceremonies to honor cancer survivors. And don't forget to wear lavender.

A three-game home stand begins tonight in Nashville as the Predators host the Colorado Avalanche at Bridgestone Arena. It's Colorado's second and final visit to the Music City this season; the Preds will visit the Avs twice in 2018.

Nashville will be looking to start a new streak tonight after a string of five-straight wins came to an end with a loss in Minnesota on Thursday night.

"You have to be as consistent as possible," Nashville center Ryan Johansen said after the loss. "We've been doing a good job of finding ways to get wins, and tonight, we just have to learn from it and move on."
